If you are a female between the ages of 10 and 22 years old you may be eligible for a research study using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to investigate the relationship between hormones, brain activity and appetite. MRI is a non-invasive way to view brain activity without using X-rays.

This study includes one screening visit to confirm eligibility and three morning visits which will include a meal, questionnaires, blood draws and two MRI scans. Visits will be spread over 18 months and will occur at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA and at the Martinos Biomedical Imaging Center in Charlestown, MA.

Eligible participants will receive $550 for completing the study. Local transportation and parking costs will be reimbursed.

In order to be eligible, participants must be willing to not take oral contraceptives (birth control pills), and must be able and willing to participate in MRI scans. If you have additional questions, please contact Meghan Slattery, NP, at (617) 643-0267 or mslattery@partners.org.

Please complete the survey below. It is okay to leave some questions blank.

Thank you!
